A massive protest is waiting to erupt in Nagaland as the deadline fixed by the influential civil society groups for Chief minister TR Zeliang to quit office ends on Friday.

Security forces are fanning in Kohima and Dimapur to deal with the impending law and order mess.

The anger griped Dimapur and Kohima when the government held the civic polls with 33% reservation for women despite widespread. Two protestors were killed in Dimapur in police firing triggering an a reign of violence in both the cities.

The angry protestors served four days ultimatum for Zeliang to quit which expires on Friday.
